Lotion Bars

by Irene Lewis

Lotion Bars

4 oz. combination of Cocoa butter, Shea butter & Mango butter

5 oz. oils of choice (almond, apricot seed, jojoba, etc.)

4 oz. beeswax 

60 drops essential oils (rose, jasmine, ylang ylang, lavender, vanilla, etc.)

Melt the butters and oil together with grated beeswax in a double boiler. When cooled slightly, add essential oils. Pour into small molds (I like to ¼ fill re-used little yogurt containers). When cooled completely, you can put the containers in the freezer for a ½ hour and the lotion bar will pop out with ease.
